The goal of this study is to evaluate how epratuzumab is processed by the body (pharmacokinetics) and whether 2 dose levels of epratuzumab are safe and effective in patients with SLE.
Condition or disease
Lupus Erythematosus, Systemic
This study is planned to provide information on how the body processes epratuzumab and how epratuzumab affects the body when epratuzumab is given once weekly for 4 weeks in a row at one of 2 different dose levels. Additional information will be obtained related to the natural variability of disease activity in SLE patients.
